  • 1
    Heat a medium-size skillet over medium heat.
  • 2
    While the skillet is heating, cut the jalapeno in half lengthwise. To keep things tame, remove the membranes and seeds, using a spoon to scrape them out. If you’d like the dip to be extra spicy, leave the seeds and membranes intact.
  • 3
    Dice the peppers and onion.
  • 4
    Add the butter to the skillet and let melt.
  • 5
    Stir in the peppers and onions and cook for 3-4 minutes or until softened. Reduce the heat to low and add the cream cheese. Stir until it starts to soften and melt.
  • 6
    Stir in the pepper jack cheese and continue stirring over low heat until it’s mostly melted.
  • 7
    Add the milk and stir until smooth and creamy.
  • 8
    While the cheese is melting, heat the spinach in the microwave according to package directions. Drain well.
  • 9
    Stir the spinach, pimentos, and salt into the melted cheese.
  • 10
    Serve with sliced bread, tortilla chips, or fresh vegetables.

Today I have an ultra cheesy dip for you that will totally be the star of the next football game. I mean, we're all watching those games for the food, right? Let’s do this!
